How to Care for your new Tattoo made in Tattoo World.
Think of your tattoo as having a warranty; if you don’t follow our instructions, you might void the warranty and he or she won’t give you free touch-ups.
Remember: tattoo artists want your tattoo to heal perfectly and look good just as much as you do, so they shouldn’t give you any poor advice.
Leave the bandage on for 3 to 24 hours. Once the tattoo is complete, your tattoo artist will clean the area, apply an anti-bacterial ointment and cover the tattoo with a bandage or some dressing. Once you have left the tattoo parlor, try to resist the temptation to open the bandage to take a peak or show off your new tattoo to your friends. The bandage is there to protect your tattoo from airborne bacteria, which can penetrate through your broken skin. The bandage should be left on for a minimum of 3 hours before you remove it.
After removing the bandage you must gently wash the tattoo. We recommend lukewarm water and mild, unscented liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap. Use your hands to gently rub the tattoo, removing all traces of blood, plasma, or leaked ink. This will help to prevent the tattoo from scabbing too soon. Do not use a wash cloth, loofah or any type of sponge to clean the tattoo, as these may harbor bacteria.
Apply ointment. Once your tattoo is fully dry and the skin begins to feel tight you can apply a little ointment, such as crème provided by the studio, to the tattoo. Make sure to apply only a very thin layer that’s just enough to make the tattoo shine and rub it in gently until it’s absorbed by the skin. It’s very important that you don’t apply too much ointment or else you’ll suffocate the tattoo and encourage the growth of bacteria.
Avoid soaking the tattoo. Until your tattoo is fully healed, you should avoid swimming in a pool, in the sea, or even soaking in the bathtub. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, exposing your tattoo to too much water may draw ink out of your skin and damage the tattoos appearance. Secondly, the water in swimming pools, the sea and the bathtub may be carrying dirt, bacteria, chemicals and other impurities that could cause your tattoo to become infected.
Do not expose your new tattoo to direct sunlight. Sunlight is the worst enemy of new tattoos. The harsh rays of the sun may cause your skin to blister and bleach some of the color from your tattoo. For this reason, it is best to keep your tattoo covered and away from the sun for at least 3 to 4 weeks, until the initial healing is complete.
Do not scratch or pick at your tattoo. As it heals, your tattoo will begin to scab. This is normal, and the scabs should be allowed to dry out and fall off by themselves. Do not try to help the process along by picking at the scabs. This may cause the scabs to fall off prematurely, leaving holes or light spots on your tattoo.
Avoid tight-fitting clothes. Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing on the area with your new tattoo, especially at first. As your tattoo heals, it will seep plasma and excess ink, which may cause the clothing to stick to the tattoo. The clothing will then be painful to remove and may rip off any freshly formed scabs.
We hope this will help you to have the best outcome of our created artwork on your body.
